NOTE:

  • Tuesday races were cancelled due to rain. I warmed up with a set of 50 pushups and 17 laps before the rain hit the track. This was my last opportunity this season to officially lower my pursuit times. I was confident based on my current fitness but it would have depended on how good my starts were.
  • I have two more race nights for this season. One is mass starts and another is sprints.  My initial reaction is to avoid the sprints.  Which leads me to the conclusion I need to do more of them.  Because if I had to pick out my weakness on the track right now it is sprinting and top end speed.  My best results this season have come from turning over a larger gear which requires an extended wind up.  Another advantage has been recovering quicker than others and repeating sprint efforts.   (Basically being able to suffer more and longer. )
  • Sprint competency and top end speed are going to be the hardest areas to train and last areas of physical improvement.
  • AM body weight 173.5
